Myofascial Release and Fascial Health

Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Module

with Lisa Ash Drackert

Thursday March 26- Sunday March 29, 2020

@ Westport Yoga KC 

Using evidence-based research on fascial health and connective tissues, learn how to safely and effectively incorporate Self Myofascial Release techniques into group classes as well as one-on-one with private therapeutic clients.

Self Myofascial Release is a healing technique that targets the connective tissue and the fascial system to decrease pain and discomfort, improve Range of Motion, restore joint mobility and build tissue integrity through hydration and healthy stress.

This training includes detailed discussion of fascial anatomy as well as how to locate and address common trigger points within muscle and fascial systems that are caused by poor posture, dehydration of tissues and overuse with improper alignment.

We will also learn how to teach pranayama exercises that induce the Relaxation Response in the nervous system and positively affect the health of our connective tissues.

Details: 30 hours (including contact and homework)
